In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Situated in a charming village just two miles off the A14 this fine 14th century building retains the original low beams & stone floor in the public bar. Darts, pool & crib are played here. The large lounge has a big open fireplace. Home cooked food is served in the potting shed & tasty snacks throughout the pub. The large enclosed garden & patio are wonderful for families in the summer. The fireplace was built from stone taken from the abbey at Bury after it was destroyed during the dissolution.

It was renamed late-2014 or early-2015 at the time when the pub ceased to be a Greene King pub.

The pub's original name comes from Squire Gardener, who owned the village in the 14th century. It was changed about 2015 because the new owner was called Gardner.
